New and...Novel

I'm doubtful as to whether anyone will come across this blog at all, but I figure this is the place to start: I'm beginning an experiment, and I need suggestions of people's favorite books. However, since I'm looking for books outside of my normal comfort zone, I'm trying to avoid generally acknowledged classics and novels by favorite authors such as David Mitchell, Kurt Vonnegut, Don DeLillo, Jeanette Winterson, William Gibson, Chuck Palahniuk, Haruki Murakami, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Any other suggestions are welcome.

hey, i came across your blog by chance, so don't give up. anyway, i recently read a book i enjoyed. it's called "the curious incident of the dog during the night-time." i found it intriguing and humourous. anyhoo, maybe you should go read other people's blogs too. i just go around reading other's blogs and leave commments. i am enjoying that. good luck and keep up the good work.

Hi Nathan,
Great to see you on-board !! Me too a fresh beginner :). I stopped by your blog for the following reasons and one primal difference;
* Your Title "Ninth Dream" was catchy
* Your name was both in my first name and last name and we do have many similarities in choices
* I have too opened up the blog in order to open up my-self and analyze my views
* My "wonder" - which is about writers and their quality
And the primal difference is::
# I don't READ :( - hence pal, I can't help you much for your request...
Anyhow - keep goin freind ... :)
